The Big Pink's Robbie Furze has confirmed that his bandmate Milo Cordell has decided to leave the group, but that he will still continue to work on their third album.

The London-based duo released their debut LP 'A Brief History Of Love' in 2009, following it up with 2012's 'Future This'. Before Christmas (December 18), they unveiled a 55-second long snippet of material from their forthcoming third album.

Robbie Furze told NME via email in a message which has subsequently been posted on the band's Facebook page: "Milo has moved to NYC to run his label, Merok and is no longer an active member in the big pink."

He added: "I am in the studio at the moment and well into the third Big Pink record. I have been working with a variety of different people, including Supreme Cuts, The Drum, Van Rivers (Fever Ray) and Andrew Wyatt. Me and Vicky [Jean Smith, drummer] have recently returned to Electric Lady studio in New York, where we recorded 'A Brief History Of Love' to record and co-produce three new tracks with John O'Mahoney [Coldplay, Metric, The Cribs producer]. We are supporting BRMC at the end of March in UK. To road test some new material and blast out some old."

The preview clip posted in December was the fifth studio leak from the The Big Pink's new LP teased by the band. All have now been removed.
